T4G Article 4 – Martyn Lloyd-Jones on Expository Preaching

Most Mondays I take the time to raid my electronic version of Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones' materials, which is produced by Logos Bible Software. Today's quote comes from a biography of the Doctor and includes several quotes from his writings that build a clear picture of the Doctor's view of expository preaching. The passage begins with a well-known statement from the Doctor’s book, Preaching and Preachers, about the critical importance of preaching. This post follows on from the quote I shared from J … [Read more...]

T4G Article 4 – John Piper on Expository Preaching

This post is part of a series on the Together for the Gospel Statement.

John Lanferman on Elijah

God moves in a mysterious way. I was thinking about revival and found a talk by John Lanferman on revival. I liked that talk, so I decided to listen to another talk by John Lanferman, which turned out to be on Elijah. Interestingly, I have been thinking about Elijah this week as well! I found the talk to be very encouraging, focusing on the idea of Elijah as a man of purpose. This Old Testament character is well worth spending some time studying and reflecting on his successes and setbacks. He … [Read more...]

LLOYD-JONES MONDAY – Revival and the Sovereign Power of God

Most Mondays I take the time to raid my electronic version of Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones' materials, which is produced by Logos Bible Software. Today's quote centers on the way revival demonstrates God’s sovereign power:“A revival, by definition, is the mighty act of God and it is a sovereign act of God It is as independent as that. Man can do nothing. God, and God alone, does it … A revival is something which, when it happens, leads people to say, as the townspeople said in Jerusalem on the day of P … [Read more...]

Somebody Who Can Save Anybody

I've been browsing through some old sermon notes for a new project I'm working on. I came across the following quote from some song lyrics, which really struck me again and could be a motto over our lives.

Getting to Know John Lanferman – Leader of Newfrontiers USA

UPDATE - I had the pleasure of interviewing John Lanferman at the newfrontiers TOAM conference.OK, if the truth be told, I have never met John Lanferman, nor have I exchanged e-mails with him.

SERMON – How to Define Revival and be Revived Personally

This past Sunday I preached on revival. You can download the audio or listen right here using the following embedded player. I have shared my notes almost exactly as I preached from them. They might not make a great deal of sense to someone else, for which I apologise. Hopefully the audio is easier to follow. This was a hard sermon to prepare, but one that I really felt assisted by God as I preached.1. Why do we need revival? “we begin to die @ birth” ...Death since Adams sin – sickness “half dea … [Read more...]

LLOYD-JONES MONDAY – Revival and Prayer

Most Mondays, I take the time to raid my electronic version of Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones' materials, which is produced by Logos Bible Software. Today's quote centers on the vital place of prayer in revival: “If you look back across the history of the Christian Church, you immediately find that the story of the Church has not been a straight line, a level record of achievement. The history of the Church has been a history of ups and downs. It is there to be seen on the very surface. When you read t … [Read more...]
